Alright decision time- which Olympic sport can we put our children in so we can sit in the stands wearing cute flag outfits like little athletic muggle parents? Don’t say Race Walking, that whole hip gyration thing weirds me out, I can’t watch my kids do sex moves for medals.

Same exact conversation…except my husband is covered in tattoos…so he looks forward to weirding the people out in the stands around us….also the problem is both of our kids so far are like crazy tall… my 3 year old they say will be 6ft 8in at 18. They are also both super clumsy… So what sport for some super tall clumsy giants.

Water polo doesn’t seem to require a WHOLE LOT of coordination. And I think you have to be tall so you don’t drown. Maybe? ;-)

Cas….I think your children should go for beach volleyball!

Or swimming….Michael Phelps is crazy tall (or maybe he just seems like a giant since I’m so little…) lol. We totally did the same thing. My son loved the gymnastics and soccer so we put all the couch pillows on the floor for him to tumble on, and a soccer ball to play with while his dad and I sat with gold medals in our eyes, haha

You could publish a book comprised solely of your emails to Andy and it would stay on the best seller lists!

Mere, I totally agree!

I love that you classified yourselves as “muggle” parents! Now lets work on getting Quidditch accepted as an Olympic sport!!!

My daughter told us she was going to go to the Olympics one day. When we asked her what she was going to do there, she replied, “take my shoes off.” LOL….watch out world, better start practicing getting those shoes off!!

“Table tennis” (I love that they made, basically, ping-pong a medal sport LOL) The equipment is cheap!

Any sport would be cool….well, except maybe the whole synchronized swimming thing. That’s just scary.

BMX racing. Not only is it awesome, boys and girls can do it.
